The first week of tryouts are over and we had a ton of people make the team. This year we had a two mile time trial on the Robertson Park course.

The top finisher for the boys was sophomore Leo Skellenger in a time of 10:43. He was followed closely by upper-classmen: Austin Horning, Austin Hoggatt, Jesus Bibiano, and Nils Carlson. Impressive efforts from first year runners Ben Dupuis (Fr. 11:29) and Harrison Goold (So. 11:32).

The top finisher for the girls was sophomore Megan McCandless in a time of 11:42. Sophie Hartley was second in 12:23, and finishing in a big pack was newcomer Haleigh Atkinson, junior Victoria Winter, and sophomore Taylor Lawsen.

On Tuesday, September 3: The Monte Vista Invitational featuring “The Eliminator.” This 2 mile course has a flat first mile followed by a giant hill. Races are competed by year in school. Parent drivers will be needed to take athletes to and from the meet. Please complete the driver volunteer forms located on the Athletics page of Granada HS website at granadahigh.com.

Captain Philosophy

Posted on Saturday, August 3rd, 2013 | 3 Comments »

Cross Country is more than a sport; it is an experience. It allows people to be a part of a successful, hard-working, determined team that promotes respect, focus, and self-control. We would like the team to help construct a positive atmosphere in order to allow others to gain from the cross country experience. It is our hope that the runners not only gain friends and fitness from the program, but a lifelong love of running.

We, the captains, all entered the cross country team for separate reasons; however, we all stayed on the team for the same reasons: to create lasting friendships, participate in a fulfilling activity, and find a competitive outlet. We improve ourselves through running and wish to leave the team with a positive legacy. Once our time with this program comes to an end, we will have learned how to achieve success not only in running, but in many aspects of life. By challenging ourselves to be leaders we see a unique opportunity to help not only grow ourselves but to help others in the program.

– Sophie Hartley, Sarah Franklin, Austin Armstrong, Austin Hoggatt, and Austin Horning
